Yesterday, initramfs-tools was upgraded to version 0.140ubuntu13.4, but this version has since been removed from repos again, and now it’s version 0.140ubuntu13.2.
This poses a couple of questions:
- Is there information anywhere about why this release was rolled back?
- Is it recommended to manually downgrade to 0.140ubuntu13.2?
This is the relevant snippet of the apt log from unattended upgrades:
Start-Date: 2023-08-09 06:47:56 Commandline: /usr/bin/unattended-upgrade Upgrade: initramfs-tools-core:amd64 (0.140ubuntu13.2, 0.140ubuntu13.4), initramfs-tools-bin:amd64 (0.140ubuntu13.2, 0.140ubuntu13.4), initramfs-tools:amd64 (0.140ubuntu13.2, 0.140ubuntu13.4) End-Date: 2023-08-09 06:48:20
This was asked on “Ask Ubuntu”, and I would like to provide a correct answer for the poster (and also take the recommended action on my own system).
Thanks in advance.
